United Way of Snohomish County

Who We Are

United Way of Snohomish County helps to build a community where all families have access to opportunity for generations to come. It’s a tall order, but we’re up for the challenge. Snohomish County has a collaborative spirit, entrepreneurship in its veins, and a drive to take care of its people. Your United Way reflects the community it serves, and we are entering the complex conversation around poverty in a more focused way. Our new, collaborative approach places children birth to age 8 and their families with low income at the core of our work. By focusing on the well-being of both the child and the adults in their lives together, we are creating long-term solutions that will unlock access to family success.

Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.

What We Do

Creating Open Roads to Equity (CORE) is about placing the whole family at the center of a collaborative partnership where multiple nonprofit, public, and private partners are working together to meet not only the needs of the child, but those of the entire family.

We are adopting two very promising national models: Collective Impact and a 2-Generational approach. Together, our new work helps place children birth to age 8 and their families with low income at the core of our communities to address root causes and unlock access to family success.

We cannot do the work we do without caring community members like you. There are many new and innovative ways to get involved with United Way. Whether it be volunteering for an hour, a day, or throughout the year; advocating for open roads to equity for Snohomish County families in different ways, or simply attending an event to support our mission and learn more. By investing your time and intellect more creatively, we can truly make a lasting impact for families with young children in Snohomish County.
